No. That was Max's early F1 style. He learned a lot. Very similar to Suzuka 1989 when Prost steered into Ayrton.

Yesterday it was Leclerc who hit the wheel of Max and NOT vice versa.

Ive seen a replay of the pass. Perfectly clean; Leclec needs to be more of a racer as should have made his car wider before the corner.

Yes Max has improved

Absolutely correct, I fully agree.

Leclerc is still too soft when fighting for position. Remembers me a lot to Rosberg in 2014/2015.

Jump in here a bit late for the season, what has given the AR car a full second in qualifying and now putting the car in a favorable position for points? The car has run up front in the last race, but you wouldn't know it from Skynet coverage as they are focused on nothing but Haas, Ferrari and Mercedes.

Great drive by Hamilton whether you like him or not, but I think my nod for driver of the race should go to Leclerc for his superb car handling.

Not agree. Mercedes pit wall crew has stolen the win from Bottas with that HAM favourizing strategy.

And Leclercs drive was dirty against Max. This was a kind of style Max used to show 2 years ago.

Vettel no comment. Absolutely disastrous.

Don't know what is going on with Vettel the past 2 years. He is his own worst enemy.....I truly feel he's lost that edge.

Not sure how Mercedesdid anything to favor Hamilton. Botas was hurt by an untimely safety car. The young guns (Verstappen and LaClerc) made Vettel look foolish...

It's been great to see two exciting F1 races in a row. Let's hope the remaining events come close to Austria and Britain.

LeClerc simply listened to those that called him 'soft' in Austria; and gave it back to Maxy in this race. Was great to watch.

Don't know if Vettel broke something; but with a new front wing and tires he should have scored the fast lap point.

Hamilton just played everyone; race fast lap on the last lap with 30 lap old tires !!

Dangerous driving (changing line under braking) is not the opposite for soft.

Max's style was again superior to Leclerc's. He didn't learn how to win such a fight, he just drove more dirty.

Since this is an Alfa Romeo site: not to forget that Alfa Romeo is improving, by Raikonen arriving at 8th. place and Vettel-Ferrari at 16 th place.

Overall it seems Raikonen is the better driver of the two at the moment, so the Alfa badge moved to the Ferrari with Kimi would be a winner! Obviously the Alfa chassis is not fast enough!
